So the news from my aunt wasn't too good. I was considering renting a car and heading there in the morning, but rental cars in G can't go one way out of state. So I debated going in my car. Thankfully someone remIndex me of Amtrak - so I'll be leaving tomorrow night and arriving Thursday morning. I just hope I'm in time. As of tonigh the doctors are giving a 50/50 chance. He had his stent fail and had to have it fixed.

I got the library situated today so it looks presentable again. I also went over all my ideas and info I'd gathered for summer school w the person who probably is going to take lead teacher.

I've been really out of it today. This morning I started to turn on red at a signal I know you can't do that. I caught myself before finishing the turn, but I don't know if I'll get a ticket eventually.

I went to Big Lots and bought 3 digital cameras for $25 each - 12 MP! They'll be used for a summer school project and also for journalism class. I also might do a digital photography class now that I have 5 cameras (bought two from amazon before finding out about this deal)

If I do end up missing summer school, I've been promised that they'll video the final program. I was so excited when I found that material ... I really hope the kids have fun with it. All of their projects will be uploaded to the wiki, so i can see them too.

TY, person taking over, owns a graphic design business. When he saw I made the space website on wix, he told me that his company has made many of the templates for it. Pretty cool. Smile

    I so hope your dad is ok. I am glad you found a way to get there asap - and hope that you are able to relax a little on the train. Hugs Laura.

    Oh, Laura... glad you're going to visit, but I'm so sorry for the reason why. Hugs.

    Amtrak is a great solution. The Husband rides Amtrak to work. Be sure to take your own food and drink. They charge a fortune on the train!

    Really bad news. The balloon failed. They took him in for emergency procedure. The likelihood of survival is minimal at best. I wish I'd just took off this pm. My car probably could've made it.

    I wish you had better news, Laura. Sending thoughts and prayers for you and your dad.

    What am I going to do? I'm a daddy's little girl with no daddy anymore. He died around 4 this morning on the operating table. Almost worse than hearing those words was hearing my baby brother in wracking sobs and being 600+ miles away.

    I am so very sorry. Frown

    Oh my god, Laura, I didn't realize you'd lost him. I'm so so sorry. You didn't have to be there when he died for him to know you loved him. Take care of yourself!

    I am so sorry. I also just read the post above too. Please remember that while the rest of the family has their issues, control of purse strings, and that all that other crap, if your dad lives in your heart as a good person, he was a good person. End of story.
